Lukas Podolski will, it seems, become an Arsenal player.
FC Köln have reportedly agreed a £10.9 million fee for their star striker to move to the Premier League.
The Polish forward has supposedly agreed personal terms with the north London club and will join in the summer.
In August 2011, Arsène Wenger also signed Per Mertesacker from Werder Bremen, and it seems that Podolski’s international teammate could have influenced his decision by talking up the Gunners.
If Arsenal do find themselves with two Germans on their books come the summer, this will be something of a rarity; with Germany historically being underrepresented in the English Premier League.
However, when Germans have made the move to England, they often make a big impact.
Here’s a look at some of the most successful German imports into the EPL.
